Tyson Fury berates Joshua for losing his 3 titles to Usyk, wants him to step aside
By Scott Gilfoid: Tyson Fury lectured Anthony Joshua like a school principal for losing his three heavyweight titles to Ukraine’s Oleksander Usyk and he wants him to step out of the way so that he can bring back the straps to the UK from whence they came.
Joshua losing his three titles to Usyk hurt not only himself, but it had an echo effect negatively impacting Fury’s career and the boxing fans losing out. Think of it this way. It’s disappointing how Joshua failed Fury and the British fans by losing to Usyk.
If Joshua had beaten Usyk last September, Fury would be facing him in April for the chance to make $100 million+. Instead, Fury is stuck fighting for less than one-quarter of that against Dillian Whyte in a fight that few fans want to see.
Joshua’s failure against Usyk has resulted in Fury being forced to take a huge pay cut to fight the complaining Whyte.
Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) let Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) that he was “useless” with the way he lost the three titles that he’d previously won seven years ago in beating then IBF/WBA/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
If Joshua were to follow Fury’s commands, the boxing world would see Fury-Usyk in a massive-money heavyweight undisputed clash with all four titles on the line.
Joshua could save his career – making huge money – by following Fury’s advice to step aside because he’ll spare himself the indignity of a second defeat against Usyk.
Letting Fury face Usyk will increase the chances considerably that Joshua meets him in the second half of 2022 for a heavyweight match of the century.
Fury lets Joshua have it
“You know what I can’t believe. AJ has gone and given Ukraine [Okeksandr Usyk] all the heavyweight belts back after all my hard work in relieving them,” said Tyson Fury on social media in letting Joshua have it about him losing his IBF, WBA, and WBO heavyweight titles to Oleksandr Usyk last September.
“You big useless dosser. You’ve had a little steroid ban, came up from middleweight and sat about ya, and take all your belts. But it’s going to take a real British Lancaster bomber to go and relieve the little useless [bleep] of the belts and get them back to Britain.
“You useless dossers. Honestly, bring them to me, the ‘Gypsy King,’ and I’ll put them in their place,” said Fury in appearing to ask Joshua to step aside so that he can rip the IBF/WBA/WBO titles from Usyk. “I’ll relieve them of the belts again,” said Fury.
I hate to say it but Fury won’t get a chance to fight Usyk until after he finishes off Joshua’s career and sends him into retirement next April.
Yeah, the money will be good for Fury when he faces Usyk later this year, but he won’t be able to get the fight against Joshua that he’s always wanted because he’d have already hung up his gloves.
